What is a virtual summit?
A virtual summit is an online event featuring a large number of experts on a topic (for this one, it is for school safety) who provide valuable information through a series of recorded interviews that participants opt-in to (for free) to have access to the materials for a limited time (in this case, 24 hours!).
This ACTION PACKED EVENT is actually two Summits in one.
FOR PARENTS AND TEACHERS: You get 6 courses designed specifically to address your needs and concerns.
FOR MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS: You get the 7 courses designed for parents PLUS the 6 courses designed specifically for mental health professionals.
When is this Virtual Summit?
The School Safety Summit is a 24 hour event that begins on April 20th at 8am Eastern Time.
How do I register?
Mental Health professionals click here and enter your email to claim your free ticket! *Note, if you are a parent or teacher, you should register here instead.
Who are the Speakers?
Jennifer has personally selected 12+ of her favorite mental health professionals to participate in this Summit. Some have PhD's, most are play therapists, ALL are mental health professionals with tons of hours and experience working with children.
Wait...are there speakers that are not play therapists?
Actually, yes. And that's okay. The Association for Play Therapy does not require all speakers to be Registered Play Therapists. They are all required to be mental health professionals. A few of the Speakers have expertise in the area of play therapy but are not Registered Play Therapists. I've included them in this Summit because I know them personally and I KNOW what value they bring.
Where can I find out more about each Presentation?
Start with the homepage for the Summit- there's a button to download all of the program descriptions and learning objectives. This is also where you find out what presentations have been approved for play therapy credit and NBCC credit (NOT EVERY PRESENTATION IS APPROVED FOR PLAY THERAPY CREDIT)
So, what are they going to talk about?
The School Safety Summit Presentations are all designed to address mental health issues. Some are aimed at helping mental health professionals provide even better services directly to children. Others are geared towards educated parents and teachers about mental health issues that affect children at school.
Is it really free?
Yes, the summit itself is free. The videos are free to watch for 24 hours only, so take advantage of the practical tips offered by these mental health experts during that time.
What happens if I miss an Interview?
If you are worried that you can't listen to all of the interviews in the 24 hours or just know that you will want to listen again to get all the details, then you will want to purchase the All Access Pass. The All Access Pass gets you LIFETIME access to ALL of the Summit interviews (12+ Speakers) so that you can listen/watch anytime and from anywhere that has an Internet connection. You will have the option to make this purchase after completing your registration. It is available at a discounted price until 4/19/18.
How much is the All Access Pass?
The All Access Pass for Professionals is $69 (this includes ALL 13 presentations)
The All Access Pass for Parents/Teachers is $39 (this includes just the 6 presentations that are geared for parents/teachers only).
*Note, this is HALF OFF the regular price and is only available BEFORE the event begins. Once the event goes live, the price will double.
Why can't parents and teachers get ALL the presentations?
First of all, its not because we think anything badly about parents or teachers. Very simply, in order for these mental health professionals to get educational credits for learning from these presentation, we must comply with professional rules and regulations regarding training.
I'm a teacher or a parent that needs to prove that I attended. Is there a certificate for me?
These presentations are not specifically approved by any educational boards for teachers. However, each course in the Parent/Teacher Bundle has a brief competency based exam (multiple choice quiz) and upon passing that quiz, a certificate of attendance with your name and date pre-printed is available.
Where do I buy the All Access Pass?
Just go here to register and then you will be given the information to purchase the All Access Pass. If during the Summit, you decide this is what you really need, there will be opportunities to purchase the All Access Pass during and after the Summit, BUT it will NEVER be this affordable again!
I want this for my WHOLE school: is there a group rate?
Yes, for the parent/teacher package ONLY, you can get access for your entire staff or administration. Email Jen Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org to bypass the registration page and get access for your entire school at discounted rates.
Can I get play therapy or licensure credits?
YES- But ONLY with the purchase of the All Access Pass and only for the presentations that are approved for APT credit or NBCC credits (the 7 professional courses). Watch and learn from these expert speakers for FREE during the Summit. Just for watching, you will get valuable and practical tips to use in your practice right away. If you want APT credit, then you must purchase the All Access Pass to access the course evaluations and quizzes necessary for APT credit.
The 7 Mental Health topics (Paris Goodyear Brown, Dr. David Crenshaw, Lynn Louise Wonders, Dr. Roz Heiko, Dr. Jessica Stone, and Sophia Ansari) are approved for 1 NBCC hour each (with the purchase of the All Access pass AND successful completion of a competency based exam). APT credit approvals are pending and will be updated when/if received.
You can find all the details and specific approvals here.
Are you an Approved Provider with APT?
Yep! Jennifer Taylor Play Therapy Services, LLC is the host of this Summit and is an approved provider with the Association for Play Therapy (Approved Provider 12-331). Some of the Speakers involved in the Summit are also Approved Providers; however, ALL credit for this Summit is provided by Jennifer Taylor Play Therapy Services.
Do you get play therapy contact or non-contact credit?
For this Summit, all credit hours are NON-CONTACT. Jen Taylor offers contact hour training. You will get notified of offers for contact hour credit when they are available.
How many play therapy credits will I get?
With the purchase of the All Access Pass- you have access to all 13 Speakers; however, only 7 of the presentations are play therapy specific. So, you have the potential to earn 7 APT non-contact hour credits (pending approval of each course by APT). Each course is designed as 1 hour of non-contact credit and you can take the quizzes one at at time. So, credits are awarded (up to) 7 different one hour certificates. That means that you don't have to listen to every Speaker to get credits. You can earn them one hour at a time over the next few months (although there is no time limit). *Note, all APT credits are pending approval at this time and are not guaranteed until approval is finalized.
Will this count for my state licensure?
Jennifer Taylor has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No, 6928. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. Jennifer Taylor is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.
The 7 Mental Health topics (Paris Goodyear Brown, Dr. David Crenshaw, Lynn Louise Wonders, Dr. Roz Heiko, Dr. Jessica Stone, and Sophia Ansari) are approved for 1 NBCC hour each (with the purchase of the All Access pass AND successful completion of a competency based exam).
Check to see if your board will accept NBCC credits. No specific social work approval is available at this time.

What are the Bonus Materials you talked about?

What is your refund policy?
You can view my official refund and cancellation policy from that yellow box at the bottom of the page. But basically, since the online event is free, you don't have to worry about a refund. If you decide you don't want to participate, simply unsubscribe to the emails. If for some crazy reason, the Summit is cancelled, you will be notified by email.
For purchasers of the All Access Pass, you have 30 days to decide that this jam packed content is worth your time and money. No questions asked refunds can be issued anytime within your first 30 days.
The only thing to remember is that NO refunds are issued after you obtain your first course certificate. So, take a look at all of the sessions and review all of the material within the first 30 days. If you like what you see, then start quizzing. If not, ask for a refund and you got it.
